From 1980 through to 1992 exhibited widely throughout the UK, including The National Portrait Gallery (twice), Royal Scottish Academy, Aberdeen Artists Society etc. During that period produced a number of portrait commissions. 1992 saw the creation of MSD Design Ltd, a growing company and a workload which left little or no time for painting. In 2011 an invitation to exhibit in a local exhibition started the production of new paintings and involvement of various models from the work force. Recent involvement in exhibitions includes The Royal Glasgow Institute, Aberdeen Artists Society, BP Portrait Award Exhibition 2014 etc. Paintings are held in both private and public collections in the UK.
